Ein Deutsches Requiem 

In Brahms’ original transcription for 4-Hand Piano. Plus Brahms’ solo songs and motets.

Featuring David Eicher and Kathleen Keasey, pianists

Laurel Thomas, soprano and Stephen Lancaster, baritone

We will close our 25th anniversary season with a concert featuring the music of German composer Johannes Brahms and highlighting his famous German Requiem. Brahms’ own arrangement of the orchestration for 4-hand piano will balance perfectly with the size of the Chamber Singers and it will sound glorious in the acoustic of the Church of Loretto. It also gives us a chance to feature our two longest-serving accompanists, David Eicher and Kathleen Keasey. Dr. Laurel Thomas, soprano, from Saint Mary’s College, and Dr. Stephen Lancaster, baritone, from the University of Notre Dame, will be the soloists for the Requiem and each will also sing a set of Brahms’ beautiful solo songs to balance out the program.
